All About

Living In Roosevelt University, IL

Roosevelt University was originally founded in 1945 as Thomas Jefferson College. However, the college was renamed Roosevelt College in honor of the First Family only two weeks after opening due to the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt with permission from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. The school was established by Edward J. Sparling, former president of the Central YMCA College in Chicago, after refusing to provide the demographics to the school's board - fearing that such information would create a quota system to limit the number of non-white and non-male students. Albert Einstein, Marian Anderson and Albert Schweitzer among other notable figures were some of Roosevelt University's earliest advisory board members.

Students living in student housing or an off campus apartment at Roosevelt University have access to the school's diverse academic programs - most of which are housed within the Auditorium Building at the Chicago campus. The university is comprised of the Chicago College of Performing Arts, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Education, the College of Professional Studies, the College of Business Administration and the College of Pharmacy.

Student living and university living at the college place students within reach of Chicago's various landmarks such as Navy Pier, Willis Tower, Grant Park, Wrigley Field, the Loop and the Field Museum. The school also contains a satellite campus in the nearby suburb of Schaumburg.
